Old Nuts

By Arthur N. Gottlieb, LCSW, CSA

(Page 2 of 2)

And while breathing the crisp air, it struck me with irony… that a difficult week of caregiving had led me to employ the very same method as my little gray friend.
 
For several days I had steadily absorbed offensive remarks by those in my care who, despite my best efforts, remained uncooperative, insulting, and controlling.
 
And, with my own reactions contained, it was my job to respond with empathy and care.
 
I believe I did this well…but my cheeks got so full - they still hurt a little.
